While this was a relatively short deployment, we were still able to have a significant impact on people who had been affected by this fire – some even for a second time from the 2011 fire, and some even from fires before that. I can’t imagine what it must be for someone to lose their home and their possessions, rebuild, lose it again, rebuild, and then lose it a third time. What resiliency it takes to come back from that kind of trauma! What a task it was to bring hope to those who could quite find that resiliency the second or third time around!
